At an altitude of 2,540 metres from the sea level, the hilltop offers a breathtaking view of the Himalayan range and lush green forests. The surrounding hills are often blanketed by fog with chilly winds blowing. On a clear day, a row of Himalayan peaks extending from Annapurna in the West to Everest in the East can be seen from the top.

A one-way ticket costs Rs 450 and it costs Rs700 for a two-way ticket. Foreigners are charged $22 per person, while the price for Saarc nationals is IRs700.
